Weird Sister

To all my “Sisters from other Misters”……..

I quickly made this card on the weekend from some leftover scraps of lace, paper and an old vintage image of an elegant lady.  She’s a little less elegant now…looks like she’s been op-shopping or playing dress-ups.

She has bling on her hat and a label in case she gets lost or forgets who she is 🙂

A little bit of vintage lace is always classy…

I decided she need some earrings too, so she got some dainty pearls at the last minute (not shown in top picture) with a dot of Liquid Pearls.  She’s ready to roll now.  Off to a tea party or crazy hat convention.  I foresee cupcakes and crochet in her future for some reason.  Maybe a little white magic and fairy dust too (I stopped short of giving her wings).

Thanks for stopping in – Hope your day is wonderful 🙂

Christmas is coming…

Christmas is coming…

I decided to get some Christmas cards made today – I am seriously behind on getting them ready for Christmas and so I need to devote a bit of time to them this fortnight (even though I want to get stuck in and play with those lovely new beads!).  I had a horrible back issue today – I’m in desperate need of a physio appointment but I just can’t afford it right now as my Health Insurance has run out for the year (roll on January!) – so I was being a bit pathetic and not accomplishing much.  But I did get a handful of simple cards done  and some is better than none!  Here they are :

This “word” panel actually had “love” in the middle of it.  But I decided to cover it with the matching red paper
so I could use the crocheted lace in the centre for a bit of texture.

Another crocheted flower (courtesy of my lovely cousin)…

This little guy needed a little something…

…so with the next one, I added a traditional snowman hat.  Much better I think 🙂

So, not a bad day’s effort in between moaning and groaning about my back and doing laundry and making dinner etc (whoops – which is still on the stove…).

Hope your weekend was happy and you got lots of whatever you love to do, done!

Thanks for visiting! 🙂
